I am currently under R-1 at a Chinese church. After a long talk with an American Church about the possibility to merge, on June 24 both congregations have passed the votes to merge. The merger on the paper (legally) should take place in 90 days. However, since I am hired by the Chinese church and once the churches merge, my church will decease legally.
What should I do for my situation?
1. Do I need to apply for new employer?
2. How about during the application/waiting period of time, my petition is not yet approved and my church CCAID deceased legally, what are the consequences? Is there a way to work with this?
3. My current R-1 will expire April 2013. I never extend it in the past.
The new church needs to file.
Please be smart enough to pay an immigration lawyer for a consultation ... and coordination with the new church's business attorney.
